Enticing aromas of black cherry, blackberry and spicy notes spring from the glass in this 2019 R|Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. Baked plum, blueberries and elderberry flavors coat the palate. Well-balanced with soft, round tannins the finish is long with a touch of black currant.
About the vintage
Heavy spring rains enriched the soils and delayed bud break by a few weeks. A heat spike in June, followed by warm weather, brought even veraison throughout the vineyards. A cooling trend and touch of rain in mid-September created ideal conditions for the 2019 harvest which is considered a near-perfect vintage.
